Pointe-à-Pitre International Airport or Pointe-à-Pitre Le Raizet Airport (French: Aérodrome de Pointe-à-Pitre Le Raizet[2] or Aéroport Guadeloupe Pôle Caraïbes[4] "Caribbean Hub") (IATA: PTP, ICAO: TFFR) is an international airport serving Pointe-à-Pitre on the island of Grande-Terre in Guadeloupe, France.

The airport is located in Abymes, 2.4 km (1.3 NM) north-northeast of Pointe-à-Pitre.[2] It is the main hub for Air Caraïbes and Air Antilles Express. Air France also has two Airbus A320 based in Pointe-à-Pitre for regional flights. It is the largest of the six airports in the archipelago. In 2019, the airport handled 2,488,782 passengers; it is the second busiest airport in the Lesser Antilles after Queen Beatrix International Airport located in Aruba, and before Grantley Adams International Airport located in Barbados.

Facilities[edit]

Aerial view

The airport is at an elevation of 35 ft (11 m) above mean sea level. It has one paved runway designated 12/30 which measures 3,125 m × 45 m (10,253 ft × 148 ft).[2] Runway 12/30 is long enough to allow aircraft as large as the A380 to take off and land without difficulty. The airport was also one of the first to handle the first A380 prototype in the second week of January 2006, for two days. The same year, the airport celebrated its 40th anniversary. The airport has two interconnected terminals, Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. Terminal 1 serves both international and regional flights. Terminal 2 only serves regional flights. [5]

The former Air Guadeloupe had its head office at the airport.[6]
